Cuyahoga County is among the nation's leaders in foreclosures, at a rate of almost 30 a day.

Local laws to fight it have recently been struck down, but a new effort is promising to give some teeth to enforcement of existing laws. We'll hear from the front lines and the perspective of some law-abiding lenders.
